|Halmahera blossom bat range|
The bat is endemic to Halmahera and Bacan islands, of the northern Maluku Islands archipelago in Indonesia. It is an IUCN Red List Vulnerable species because: its extent of occurrence is less than 20,000 km²; it is known only from three locations; and there is ongoing decline in the extent and quality of its habitat due to intensified habitat destruction. A 2017 study ranked the species as the 8th highest research priority among island endemic bats based on conservation situation and current data availability.
